Blog > Postcrossing Spotlight: Jany from Mexico!
Jany, (aka jany_gurb) is one of the top postcrossers in Mexico. She is passionate about traveling, walking in new cities and discovering foreign cultures.
Here is what she had to say to our interview questions:
- How did you come across Postcrossing? What got you hooked?
Since I was a little girl I loved postcards, my dad used to buy some of them when he was in another cities, and with the time his postcards became mine.
I was looking in the internet a place where you can exchange postcards in Mexico, and in one page there was “Postcrossing”, I read about it and I was surprise that one web like this exist; imagine you can swap a postcard with someone in another country – to me it was amazing.
So from that day (that was 3 years ago) I became a huge fan of this page!
- Do you have any other interesting hobbies?
I like photography, jogging, watching football on TV, reading, listening to music and my passion is travelling. I love walking in a new city and talk with people and know their culture.
- Show us your mailbox, your mailman/mailwoman, your postoffice or the place where you post or keep your postcards!
Here is my mailbox:
These are my mailmen:
Here is where I mail and buy my postcards:
And this is where I keep them:
- Show and tell us about your favorite received postcard to date, and what makes it special.
About my favorites: all of them are favorites to me, I think each postcard I received is special because everyone has something specific to tell.
But with the very first one from Finland (left) I saw that it was a trusting postcard web project!!! And my favorite postcard #2 is this Neuschwanstein castle’s postcard (right), since it was my first postcard with this amazing castle.
- Have you been surprised by any place that you have received a postcard from or sent a postcard to?
Yes when I received postcards from countries like Israel, Qatar and United Arab Emirates they really surprise me. Those countries are so far of mine that I couldn’t believe that i got postcards from them!!
- Have you met any other members in real life?
Yes i went to Italy a few months ago and I met DavideGE. He waited for me at the train station and he show me his beautiful city Genoa, also we exchange some postcards. He is an amazing guy I had a great time!!
